Honolulu

Honolulu ©
In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Kailua Beach Park and Lanikai Beach. And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach, explore the different monuments and memorials at Hawaiian Memorial Park Cemetery & Funeral Services, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and explore the striking landscape at Halona Blowhole.

To find photos, traveler tips, and more tourist information, use the Honolulu trip maker site .

Dusseldorf, Germany to Honolulu is an approximately 23-hour combination of train and flight. You can also fly. Traveling from Dusseldorf to Honolulu, you'll gain 11 hours due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Dusseldorf in October, things will get much hotter in Honolulu: highs are around 36°C and lows about 27°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 21st (Mon) early enough to travel to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
